Evening News Anchors Land in LA to Cover Horrific Wildfires

By A.J. Katz 

The conditions in West LA, the San Fernando Valley and Ventura County, California are worsening rapidly, and the three evening news anchors have landed in the region to cover the fires and anchor their respective broadcasts from the ground tonight.

The new CBS Evening News anchor Jeff Glor told us he wanted to take the broadcast on the road in a recent interview, and he’s getting to do just that in his first week on the job.

Glor was the sole evening news anchor to report from the ground for his network’s morning show, CBS This Morning, and like his counterparts, he’ll anchor his newscast this evening from Southern California.

Here he is speaking to Cal Fire southern region chief Thom Porter early this morning:


ABC World News Tonight anchor David Muir will anchor his network newscast from Southern California tonight as well — after anchoring from the wildfires in Northern California on October 10 (as seen below).


NBC Nightly News anchor Lester Holt flew into LA overnight, and will also lead his evening newscast from the region tonight.
